Millie and family, I am sorry for your loss. Sandra was a wonderful woman and full of life. I know her since McKinley days and in PHEA- teens, I remembered you, Millie. You were activated in PHEA- teens. I last saw Sandra at the DeVilbiss High school reunion. She was very happy and excited to meet all her old friends. I am glad to be one of her old friend.
